This latest addition to the cast of Fox’s Prison Break revival is quite… sweet.
For the nine-episode event series, which begins filming in Vancouver in April, Amaury Nolasco will reprise his role as Fernando Sucre, the actor announced Tuesday via Instagram.
For those keeping score, that’s now two of the nine characters TVLine said “must” be a part of the revival, while Robert Knepper is currently in talks to return as T-Bag (who plays a rather instrumental role in the continuation).
In the drama’s new chapter, which picks up after “escape artist” Michael Scofield’s apparent death, Sara Tancredi (Colony‘s Sarah Wayne Callies) has moved on with her life, raising her and Michael’s child with her new husband (to be played by Royal Pains‘ Mark Feuerstein). But when clues surface suggesting that Michael (Legends‘ Wentworth Miller) may be alive, Sara teams with his brother Lincoln (Legends‘ Dominic Purcell) to engineer the series’ “biggest escape ever.”
Nolasco’s apres-Prison Break TV credits have included Southland, Chase, Gang Related, a short-lived ABC sitcom, Rizzoli & Isles and, most recently, the NBC comedy Telenovela.
